The lotus is flower is  flower with many different meanings to different religions. In Buddhism, lotus flowers mean purity of speech, mind and body rising above the waters of desire and attachment. Different colors of lotus are symbolically used to represent aspects of perfection. Red in lotus represents the heart--its purity, original nature, compassion, passion, love and other qualities. I love water lotus flowers. To me they represent beauty that emerges from water that is often times murky and even muddy. How something so beautiful can come from such murky water is a miracle of nature. A reminder that beauty and peace can come from the darkest and ugliest experiences.
